Abstract

The Thermalhydraulic Studies Group of Technical University of Catalonia (UPC) holds a large background in nuclear safety studies in the field of Nuclear Power Plant (NPP) code simulators. This report analyzes with RELAP5mod3.3 the LSTF Test 3-2, which simulates a loss-of-feedwater transient (LOFW) without scram and with a total failure of the high pressure injection system (HPIS). The simulation of several phenomena related with the high power natural circulation has been object of study as well as the impact of the environment heat losses in the primary coolant discharge across the pressurizer power-operated relief valve (PORV).
